Place 49 – Day 296: Auckland – Post Modern Jukebox

Curtis’ Day;

The start to Curtis’ day was great! He actually remembered his keys do was able to go to work.

After he got to work, he spoke with his family back in the UK. It was lovely for Curtis to speak with them, it was just a shame it was to receive bad news.

After, Curtis had to clean his bag as the leftover swedish meatballs had gone everywhere! Finally, Curtis began work.

The day started with admin and then Curtis did training for most of the morning.

In the afternoon, Curtis had a couple of remote sessions penned in, two of which went really well and the third was unable to happen.

Both of us;

We both got home and did some laundry.

Post laundry, Kim made a spaghetti Bolognese and we ate that pretty quick!

Tabitha came over at 19:15 and Curtis drove Kim and Tabitha down to the city as they were watching a show.

Kim and Tabitha watched post modern jukebox, who take new songs and cover them in a vintage style. This was an amazing show!

Kim and Tabitha left and went to McDonald’s to get an ice cream. After that, Curtis drove down to collect them, drop Tabitha home and then drive home.

When we got home, we finished packing for the weekend! We have an awesome weekend planned with Josh and Danielle which should be great fun, though and early morning tomorrow!

This time last year!

Poroporoaki!

Place 49 – Day 295: Auckland – Keys, Noel Leeming Sale Show & Big Bug Attack!

Curtis’ Day;

Curtis left the house at the normal time and shortly afterwards he realised that he left his car and house keys inside on the floor! The presented an issue as no-one else at home was awake. Curtis tried phoning and texting Kim as well as shouting for her and knocking on the door multiple times. Non of these methods worked, so Curtis told his boss he would be working from home, eventually!

Curtis was eventually let into the house by Kim after 40 minutes and she found it rather funny. On the plus side, Curtis got some great photos of the sky whilst outside.

Curtis then worked from home for the rest of the day and at lunch, started watching the first Leafs game of the season!

Curtis’ day was busy but only with a few admin-type tasks which seemed to take a long time.

Both of us;

When Kim got home, she had a shower and then we went down to the ASB Showgrounds which is a big exhibition centre. This was today filled with essentially a big technology sale, ran by the company Noel Leeming.

Kim’s workplace were attending and they recommended that Kim go and take a look, so that’s what we did.

We got free coffee when we arrived from the lovely people at Nespresso and then went into the event.

We saw Kim’s work colleagues and spoke with them for a while and then left to have a look around the event.

The event was huge with a lot of people but things were selling like hotcakes…trolleys full of items left right and centre!

We finally decided to leave and get some food as we were starting (it was 19:30!). We went to KFC as it was easy and close. The KFC wasn’t great and we had to get another wrap as Curtis’ completely fell apart…Luckily though, we got to keep both so we ate the filling of the first too.

We got home and watched the latest bake off episode before bed.

This time last year!

Place 49 – Day 294: Auckland – The Weather is Improving!

Curtis’ Day;

When Curtis got to work, be found out some staff related news which was interesting!

Curtis planned to do his monthly appraisal, which he has to score himself on first before his manager does. Unfortunately, this was not setup right so he couldn’t do it.

Curtis had just a few cases to do today, and managed to get most of them done, having a bit of a more relaxed afternoon.

Curtis left for work around 16:20 and the traffic was really bad again, but the weather has much improved, so it was warm and beautiful!

Both of us;

We both got home and Kim forced herself to go to the gym. It was a bit too hot for the gym, so Kim didn’t stay there long.

When Kim got home, we had meatballs in a spicy sauce with a delicious side salad.

After this, we watched a couple of videos and then Curtis needed a shave so he did that then it was bedtime. We are both absolutely exhausted.

This time last year!

Poroporoaki!
